Event details

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED AS THE SPEAKER IS UNWELL. Brought to you by the Centre for Biological Sciences External Seminar Series and the Institute for Life Sciences Quantitative Biology Seminar Series.

There are many areas of bio-inspired computing where inspiration is taken from a biological system to construct an engineered solution. This talk will focus on the modelling of the immune system using agent-based simulations and the trustworthiness, or otherwise, of such simulations and the use of the immune system as inspiration in a variety of settings from robot mounted chemical identification to self-healing swarm robotic systems. We will explore how the modelling and engineering work can compliment each other, and pass comment on the thrills and pitfalls of interdisciplinary working.


 *** Refreshments will be served from 14:00-15:00 in the Building 85 Level 7 Observatory ***
